Portrait of the Graduate
The New School is special for many reason — for its unique academic program and sense of community, for its spirit of inquiry, dialogue, and inclusiveness. Add to that list our collective good-humor, and what you have is a humane school that does not presuppose the individual, their conclusions to questions, the colleges and universities they attend, and the direction they ultimately take their lives.
A New School graduate is a skilled and dynamic learner; an individual prepared to solve new problems across the disciplines, from science and mathematics, to the humanities and arts. And because we focus on reason, creativity, dialogue, and civility in a safe and non-judgmental space, our students emerge centered and confident, and simply happy and comfortable with themselves.
There is no greater empowerer than an education, backed by a school culture, that provides that space for students to express their ideas, hone their academic skills, and grow into the people they wish to be.
